Series: The Minnipins #1
The Minnipins have lost their past. And not only that, they’ve lost their heroes, individuality, and ability to think for themselves! Nobody realizes this, of course – nobody except Walter the Earl, the poet Gummy, the eccentric Curly Green, and the simple – but highly effective – Muggles, who even dares to wear an orange sash for everyday. They know something is coming over the mountains, but nobody will believe them. So these tiny heroes set out to do the unthinkable – and save their fellow Minnipins.
I”m not going to bother with a ‘positive content, negative content, etc.’ format here, because there is no negative content to be found in this book. Heroism, doing what’s right even if it means dire consequences, perserverance, and friendship are the major themes in this adorable, humorous, adventurous book. It was completely clean, totally charming, and I can’t wait to read the second book in the series, “The Whisper of the Glocken.” I was wondering what all the hullabaloo was about, and now I know. This book is the perfect children’s book – and when you’re too old for children’s books, you’re dead. Read it. Read it now.
